Metro Scholars

Metro Scholars

This year-long, highly competitive program, open to high school juniors from across New Jersey, is a unique opportunity for students to learn about professional theater. In addition to seeing every show in our season for free, selected students take workshops and master classes with professional artists and assist staff throughout the company – an immersion into theater that has made this a proven training ground for the country’s best university programs. Since 2005, 141 outstanding students have completed the Metro Scholar program.
